Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Glenn,



We forgot to write in your guest book about our experience, this letter is our expressions of thanks.



We came to celebrate our friend's 50th wedding anniversary. When we walked in the door we knew right away this was the right choice.



Your home offers a friendly atmosphere, great location, comfortable beds and a gorgeous deck to take in all of the beautiful surroundings.



Glenn, you are a wonderful host. Your caring manner was obvious from the time we first spoke to the time that we were driving home, when you called about a camera being left behind. Joyfully, we discovered the camera was yours.



The weather you ordered could not have been better!!



Thanks for everything!! We will be back.

wedding anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the warm welcome for our 30th wedding anniversary. During our stay we renewed our wedding vows on the deck with some beautiful sunshine. We were blessed with having our children and our twin grandchildren there to join us for the moment. The grandchildren were using the hallway to burn up their extra energy The beach was secluded and quiet. And during one of our walks we found a couple of live horse shoe crabs on their backs. We turned them back over and watched them go back to the ocean. The weather was great everyday sunshine even after the it rained a couple times in the morning. It was very relaxing. The house offered everything you needed and the stores and restaurants were a short drive from the house. And on the drive to town you could enjoy seeing the nice country side. Watching the oil tankers on the horizon it seemed like they never moved because they were so slow. They were filming a movie a couple houses down from the house based on the book "Delaware Shore" from Michaelangelo Rodriguez. It was interesting observing the work it took to make a movie. Thank you Glenn for you assistance and your quick response when having questions. Time went by too fast.

We are thinking of renting again in the future. And a big thanks for the flowers, oranges, and wine waiting for us when we arrived.

As advertised, and much, much more!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our dog, Sanford) have stayed in several HomeAway properties, but Glenn’s place is head and shoulders above the rest. If you read any of the other reviews, you’ll notice a common theme “Glenn has thought of everything”. This is not an exaggeration. There’s even a bicycle built for two!! We liked the location of the house. It’s pretty close to Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge and a few of the state parks. Rehoboth Beach boardwalk was really cool. Even though we visited during the slow season, many of the specialty shops were open on the weekend. The old fashioned arcade was a blast! In a nutshell, this was a fantastic trip. Thank you Glenn, for sharing this wonderful home with us.

We just returned from spending a few days at this wonderful beach cottage. The property is gorgeous, it was beautifully appointed with everything you would need for a vacation. The attention to detail is amazing and the hot tub on the deck was just so relaxing. Great house and our dog was happy too! Thank you Glenn and we will be back!

Glen was exceptionally responsive and gracious. This home was elegantly decorated while being child friendly and relaxed. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into making this home comfortable for guests. We will definitely come again.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house was exceptionally clean and well cared for. We wanted a true get away and this is the perfect spot for it. The house is stocked with everything you could need. Even a Kuireg Coffee Maker. (Glenn you should add that in your disctription!). The bedding and towels were great quality. The home was wonderful. Thank you!
